A very traditional Cretan village set in the foothills of the White Mountains. Panoramic views of the verdant Vrisses valley, and views of the mountains, are available from most parts of the village. The Vafeions have their own co-operative for the development of local traditions and way of life, with an emphasis on organic farming. The village has a lovely renovated stone taverna, and a kafenio. Further amenities, and the National Highway, can be found just 3kms down the hill in Vrisses.
